I am new in the 3d world , I want to print 4 models but not in the same time (constant Z), I want to load the g code and to print 1 by 1 when the printer finish 1 to go to the other model is it possible? I attache the photo is just an example. I want to do this because when i try to print them in the middle and all in the same time afhter the 3 layer 1 piece get off from the 

platform and destroy the other models.

    You want to set the setting "print sequence" to "one at a time".  Note that it will not honor your request if the parts are too close together relative to your machine settings print head size.  And it will not honor your request if your parts are higher than the "gantry height" (also in machine settings).


    But these parts look plenty small enough so you may be lucky and not have to mess with your "machine settings".


    Also note that several plugins that rely on "layer height" have trouble with "one at a time" mode.  Such as the plugin "tweak at Z".  But most likely you don't use any plugins.


    You will know it worked because as you scroll through layer height in preview screen you will see it doing one part at a time.

    By the way, in general, with small parts like these, the quality will be much better if you print them all at once as one has time to cool while the other's print.  I even arrange them left to right in a line so that the fans on either side of the head cool the neighboring parts.


    You could easily print in pairs or triplets by putting 2 or 3 of these in a single STL file and choosing "one at a time" mode.


    If you are getting stringing between the parts it might make more sense to tackle that issue instead.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
